    This is a must visit in Vancouver. This is beautiful place. Try to go early on a weekday. You pay for parking, but there is no free parking in Vancouver.

    A free shuttle bus runs regularly to Grouse Mountain and back from Canada Place, downtown Vancouver, which takes around 25 minutes.

    We arrived and got straight onto the gondola without any queuing.

    Once at the top there was plenty to do, if we had realised that there was so much to do and see we would've tried to arrive earlier! But in the time we had we did well! Bears, birds, lunch, chairlift to the summit, and we even watched the amazing Lumberjack Show, which, as I said was amazing!

    And as I said previously, the views back over Vancouver are stunning, the closer to the sky you are the better the views!

    At $79.00pp, I'd say it's good value for money.

    One of the most beautiful spots in a city that is full of of beautiful spots. There is a small park and a small beach with great views of the sea. The park is quiet and secluded with conveniently placed benches for relaxing and taking in the natural beauty. There is a small shopping area nearby with some good eating joints

    Having visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, out guided tour then took us up to the Grove Mountain Ski Area. We rode the Mountain Skyride for access to the top and found it all a great experience. At the top, we were able to purchase lunch (even if the prices seemed over the top) but wandered around to enjoy the views overlooking Vancouver as well as visit the 2 grizzly bears kept up there and went to the free lumber jack show which was entertaining with a real comedy theme running through it.
    Added to the morning trip to Capilano Park it made for a very good outing.

    It is free to enter and wander through this facility. It was interesting to see the fish ladder, both outside next to the river and from the underground viewing area. There were plenty of posters providing information about the hatchery and different salmon species. A great place to learn about Canada's native salmon, their life cycle and to observe them up close. There were toilets available. We walked up to the hatchery from the Suspension Bridge park, 20 minutes, accurately predicted by Google!

    A gorgeous park with scenic views of the mountains, the Capilano River, and the Cleveland Dam. The place is ideal for a family picnic and a relaxing afternoon rest.

    The trailhead is comfortable for recreational distant walking or hiking. Further down the trail is the Capilano River Hatchery and it’s amazing to watch the spawning ponds and jumping salmon.

    A peaceful place to commune with nature.

    From Lonsdale terminal we took the so-called "Sea Bus" to cross over North Vancouver and visit this place. The ride lasted for just a few minutes, but it was very relaxing and well organized. Nirth Vancouver is a lovely place to go to, with lots of eateries and pubs (among other things). The view of the city is also beautiful. But what I liked the most was exploring the Quay Market and Food Hall itself, with all its food kiosks and shops. There's a good selection of international cuisine to choose from. We opted for some Mexican food, which was great.

    Visited with my 11 y.o. son on a spur of the moment outing; rode our bikes there so easily found "parking" on a busy day right next to the entrance. They had a special visit from a reptile sanctuary which was the purpose of visiting however my son really enjoyed the ongoing exhibits as much as the guests. Thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there.

    This is an intermediate hike with lots of climbing. It’s not a very long hike and will take roughly 45 minutes to climb up. The views from the top is very beautiful
